In keeping with current government guidelines regarding the COVID-19 pandemic, performances in the theatre space are postponed until further notice.  If you have bought tickets for any postponed shows, a new date for the show or an alternative method of delivering the show is currently being worked out. As this is a fast moving and ever changing situation, we kindly request that you give us time to work out potential future dates or alternative options for you to choose from, before requesting a refund.

If you’re interested in using the arts to push boundaries, provoke change, break barriers and create an impact, then DIY is for you.

Do It Yourself (DIY) is an intensive, practical programme for BAME emerging artists aged 18 - 25 who want to use their artistic skills to create social change.

‘Activist art is a term used to describe art that is grounded in the act of ‘doing’ ’ - Tate

… therefore, the Do It Yourself programme aims to equip emerging artists with effective techniques used in activism and the arts, fusing the two, so that they can actively create change themselves.

As ‘activist artists’ they will create work which address social or political issues. Rather than describing or pointing out issues, artists will create work to directly achieve a specific goal.

Participants will develop knowledge, skills, and experience through a series of workshops and an opportunity to showcase their work.
